Oneballjay and Bluebird are widely known as being about as good as it gets in snowboard wax

Each wax has a temperature zone, pay attention to that

Freshly applied, properly prepped wax of correct temperature range is the best wax.

Unless you're racing, the minor differences in waxes won't make much of an impact to you. I buy bulk wax and apply it often. Proper application and prepping is more important than the wax you're using.

I know a guy that swears by birthday candle wax and doesn't scrape. Every time he brags about it I laugh and laugh...
